Jim’s Journal: Yes, You CAN Have Balance

August 26, 2013 in Jim's Journal

 

That’s right.  I said it!  You can have work and family life balance!  The question is, “Will you do what it takes to make it happen?”  Many organizations have wonderful niceties on site (e.g., work-out facility, dry cleaners, grocery store and gift shop) so you don’t have to leave.  I know many of us work crazy hours (including weekends) and a nine to five doesn’t exist.  It’s been replaced by eight to late.  But you still can find balance if you look for it.  Remember, what you focus on grows and what gets your attention gets you.  If you’re a work-a-holic, you’re going to have to make your family moments matter.  No more reading the paper during dinner time.  Talk to your family members.  No more coming home and jumping right onto the computer.  Spend some quality time with your children.  And if you’re not married, and you don’t have any children, take advantage of your off hours.  Relax.  Play.  Workout.  Treat yourself to your favorite treats.  I know this is going to be hard to do, but leave work at work more often.  Some people can’t even go to the bathroom without taking their cell phone with them.  Yes, you can have work and family life balance…if you want it!  You find time to do that other stuff, right?
